I'm Back!

You might have noticed I've been away from blogging or anything to do with the computer for several days now. I think I said I'd hurt my back last time, but that was just an understatement! I pinched a nerve and I've been unable to sit up for very long since the beginning of last week! A trip to the clinic and some a nice hot water bottle have been helping, but I'm still on the mend. Sometimes when I get up from sitting, it takes my breath away because it hurts so bad! It seems like I've had a run of bad luck and I'm ready to break free!

I was able to put the finishing touches on this card today before I posted it in my Etsy store. I love the way it turned out. The image is from Sassy Cheryl's. It was a freebie for the number of members to her site. I printed 2 and cut the bear so he would be 3-D. The clothespin was from a friends box of goodies she sent me!

Speaking of friends, I hope we all have some, but today I wanted to thank a very special friend I have. I like to think of her as my own angel on my shoulder! I've known her for several years, but never met her in person. It seems like when I'm at one of my low, low points, she's there for me. I'm so thankful of her friendship. She is one very special lady! I really hope that each of you has a special friend like that.

Well, I'm off to watch the DVR. I've got so much loaded onto it and need to empty a little for some new shows this week. Barry is working again today. I think it's his 10th day straight. He's working tomorrow and Tuesday and then maybe he'll be off on Wednesday. The money will be a blessing when he gets it next week. All I can think of is making it until Wednesday when Barry gets his Social Security and we stock up the ole pantry!

  1. Pretty clever with that clothespin. I used to have a mess of them and never used any. Gone now to clothespin heaven. Very colorful card and way cute as usual.

    Hope you feel better soon Paula. It will be Wednesday before you know it. The third Wed. is also my payday.
